On arrival we were offered tea or coffee with scones and jam,the fresh warm scones were delicious, just what you need after a long drive. There are large acres of land and beautiful scenery and very peaceful. Our bedroom was spacious and very comfortable, overlooking fantastic views. There is a fish pond in the front garden and in the back garden were geese, chickens, ducks, micro pigs and horses roaming around. Ed and Anna made us very welcome right from the time we arrived. Breakfast was delicious with tasty fresh eggs from their own chickens. There is The Stour Wood RSPB just a walk away overlooking the estuary. Harwich is a 9 minute drive away. We would like to thank Anna and Ed for their very kind hospitality and would recommend staying here to anyone.
